Gustav Klimt: Modernism in the Making is an excellent study of the artist's work that was published to accompany a 2001 exhibit at the National Gallery of Canada. It contains not only examples of the artist's most important paintings and drawings, shown in two separate catalogues, but several essays that help place the artist in the context of fin de siècle Vienna when that city was home not only to the Secession but also to the music of Mahler and the psychoanalytic theories of Freud.
